3 Players Rams Should Consider Signing

Earlier today we posted who the Rams should trade for to replace Sam Bradford. A trade seems like an unlikely thing the Rams would do, but the Rams front office has proved it isnt afraid to make the big move.

If the Rams decide not to go with a trade then they may have to pick some players off the street. Here are three players the Rams should consider signing.

 

Tim Tebow

When it comes to Tim Tebow you either like the guy or you hate the guy, there is no in between. If you follow ESPN First Take, Im on the Skip Bayless side when it comes to Tim Tebow. The guy has proved he’s a winner. He is a leader that the Rams desperately need and that spark.

Not to mention he went 7-4 as a starter and won a playoff game against the league’s best defense. You can say Tebow didnt win the Broncos games, but he sure didnt lose them games. In 12 games in 2011 Tebow only threw six interceptions and lead the Broncos to five come from behind victories.

He might also be a good fit in for the Rams. Tebow likes to run the read option wild cat style offense which could be something the Rams could run. It would just be another way to utilize Tavon Austin. It may not be the best option, but every one wants to see this guy get one more shot, why not here and now. The Rams have reportedly talked about it, but said it was unlikely.

 

Austin Davis

Austin Davis may be the guy that the Rams ultimately sign. Davis has been with the the Rams the past two seasons and has experience with Schottenheimer and the Rams receivers. Davis was thought to maybe get the backup role this season, but that was not the case. Davis is younger and faster and Clemons may just continue his player coach role on the team.

 

Vince Young

Vince Young is an obvious option especially considering his background with Fisher. Similar to Tebow every body wants Young to get another shot and see him start. At this point, why not. Young is 30-17 as a starter and may not be a bad option for the Rams, it will definitely be one that the Rams will have to consider.

Young recently was cut by the Green Bay Packers and had a bad stint with the Eagles, but a reunion with his old coach may just provide the confidence booster that he needs.

 

There are many other free agent options such as John Skelton, JaMarcus Russell, David Carr, the list goes on and on, but right now the river is pretty dry in terms of quarterbacks capable of starting. It will be interesting to see which direction the Rams will go.

    Young and Fisher had their issues I don’t see that as an option, I saw they are working out Brady Quinn but don’t like it either

    • Blaine Grisak

      they also have Matt Leinart and Greg McElroy coming in. Rams have little options, looks like whoever they bring in will just back up Clemons.

    Fisher was never a fan of Vince Young and, in spite of what Skip Bayless wanted to believe, he was right about the QB. Young’s wins with the Titans were mostly due to their defense and Chris Johnson and he was unable to win the backup gig in Green Bay.

    Tim Tebow cannot play quarterback. People like Skip Bayless can refuse to admit this all they want but the Broncos defense was what enabled them to win those games. You have to realize that even the worst QB ever to play the game will have one or two very good passes per game and can (and probability tells us WILL eventually) end up having a streak of 7 wins because his one or two ‘very good passes’ will come in the last 2 minutes. For all the flack that Mark Sanchez catches he is ten times the QB that Tebow could ever be.
